About This Product

Talk about red and ruffled! This new crape myrtle from Baucom's nursery has distinctly different, carnation-like, glowing red flowers that show beautifully against the lustrous dark green foliage. Foliage turns orange-red in fall. The habit is upright, but compact, with dense branching. Like the others in the magic series, ruffled red re blooms in late summer if the first flush of flowers is deadheaded. It is also resistant to cercospora leaf spot and powdery mildew, which is quite a breeding accomplishment in red crape myrtles.

  • Lush foliage turns a beautiful shade of orange-red in fall

not packaged adequately for safe shipment
This plant arrived all broken. It was shipped in an ordinary cardboard shipping box. It was labeled with arrows on box on which side should be up, but shippers obviously paid no attention to the directions; when I retrieved the box from my porch, it was sitting upside down. So the top of the plant is all broken. I don’t know if it will recover or not. very disappointed.

    The shrub was much shorter than is normally found in a 2 gallon pot. I suppose it had been pruned and recently replanted into the larger pot. Hopefully the root system is developed enough to allow the plant to survive. Time will tell

    Came a bit shorter than pictured but healthy and striving. Waiting for bloom time.

    It's absolutely sad what was shipperd to me. The tree had maybe 5 branches and a few leaves. Maybe shipping an established tree to customers would be a better idea. Will never order online plants or shrubs again!
